Small fuel leak

So I happened to be looking under my truck and notice an oily spot on the ground. I looked under the truck to notice it was directly below where my fuel separator gets drained. Is there a seal inside that drain valve that can go bad? Can it be replaced cheaply? I did make sure the drain was fully closed.

the drain has a gasket that might have gone bad. the fuel separator comes off fairly easy and the housing that holds that yellow lever is only held in by 3 bolts.
